A Passaic County man was sentenced today to 120 months imprisonment for possessing multiple images and videos depicting child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.

According to U.S. Attorney Sellinger, Robert Klemt, 35, of Wayne, previously pleaded guilty to an information charging him with possessing explicit images of minors. Judge Hayden imposed the sentence today by videoconference.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

In June 2020, agents with the Department of Homeland Security – Homeland Security Investigations approached Klemt at his residence after receiving information suggesting that Klemt had accessed a website containing explicit images of minors. 

Law enforcement subsequently discovered on Klemt’s laptop computer over 70 explicit images and videos of minors.

In addition to the prison term, Klemt was also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release. Klemt must also register as a sex offender.
